L.A. judge to decide on Terrence Howard divorce settlement

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Thomas Trent Lewis said on Monday, August 17 that it will take him a week to decide whether to allow actor Terrence Howard to set aside a divorce settlement that will entitle Howard’s second ex-wife, Michelle Ghent, to spousal support and a share of Howard’s professional earnings.

During the trial, Ghent’s attorney questioned Howard regarding allegations of domestic violence towards Ghent, dating back as far as 15 years ago.

Howard is contending that the 2012 divorce agreement he signed with Ghent should be found void because he was being blackmailed by Ghent, as she allegedly threatened to reveal personal information about him to the press.

Iggy Azalea denies marriage and divorce

Twenty-four-year-old Australian rapper Amethyst Amelia Kelly, more popularly known as Iggy Azalea, is currently facing divorce–although she denies that she was ever married, TMZ reported on October 10.

Divorce documents obtained by entertainment news network TMZ were filed by Hefe Wine, otherwise known as Maurice Williams, in Texas to put an end to his and Azalea’s common-law marriage. Under Texas law, if a couple lives together and presents themselves as married, they are considered married under the eyes of the law. Azalea vehemently denies that they were ever married.

Earlier reports showed that Azalea and Hefe have been legally fighting for the rights to the music Azalea wrote when they were still a couple.

Azalea has been dating 29-year-old Los Angeles Lakers basketball player Nicholas Aaron “Nick” Young for a year now.
